Good Things Part 5

Some good things that have happened recently… I bought this excellent comic book which I had wanted for ages: I went to London for the David Bowie exhibition at the V&A. It was very good. I also met up with some old friends from up north. I couldn’t get any pictures inside the museum, so … Continue reading

New Room

I moved house recently and I’m feeling much more settled now. I even took a trip to Ikea, which was quite a novelty after several years spent moving between countries. This doesn’t mean I’m going to stay in England forever… but for now at least. I’ve put pictures on the walls and bonded with my … Continue reading

Santa Lucia Market

A collector of pointless crap that I don’t need. But I’m living in a new place that I want … Continue reading


In October my friend Natalie and I decided to get out of China for the national holiday. The only place we could get cheap flights to was Seoul, which was lucky as I really wanted to go anyway. Natalie had been a few times before and raved about the shopping. We stayed in Hongdae, which … Continue reading


Because I am often busy, and sometimes lazy, and sometimes have the attention span of a gnat, I thought it would be a good idea to set up a Tumblr page for small things which I might not put here on the main blog. Check it out here. I will continue to post here too, … Continue reading

Three places I’ve worked: Priestley’s Vintage (York)… Bellerby’s College (Brighton)… freelance writing for art/music/literature magazines and websites (wherever).
